We always maintain that pace is the most important quality that Premier League forwards need and Chelsea are today being linked with one of the fastest players around.
Jose Mourinho will surely look to add to his misfiring forward line if possible over the winter and The Telegraph says that Chelsea have shortlisted a real speedster.
West Brom’s £20m Saido Berahino added to Stamford Bridge transfer targets
At 22 Said Berahino seems very keen on a move. He famously threatened to go on strike at WBA in the summer when a proposed move failed to materialise.
He should already be a full England international and he has a remarkable 10 goals in 11 games for the U21s. But his problems at club level have perhaps stymied his progress.
But a big move still seems on and we think that Chelsea could do far worse.
Because it’s not just pace that Berahino has in bucket loads. He also has great composure and finesse in front o goal.
With the right focus this is an international starter and we think that Chelsea could be signing a gem if they go for him.
Let’s see Berahino in action.
Chelsea fans: is this the right striker for the club or is his temperament an issue?
